Weekly Wrap-up : Winter Break is Here!

Happy Friday! Our Winter break is officially on and we are all excited. We have family coming in for the holidays, treats to bake, presents to wrap and a house to get in order. Whew! I'm tired from just listing all that!

Since we are on break we didn't do any actual school work this week but we did have some fun adventures.

We did spend Monday night singing Christmas carols with our Cub Scout group at a local rehabilitation home.

This is a yearly service event we do and the kids have a blast. The residents also have fun and of course us parents, well we just have hearts bursting at the seams :). 

We spent some time watching a few of our favorite Christmas specials. Prep and Landing and Prep and Landing 2 came on this week and they are two of our new favorites. 

Nothing like cuddling up on the couch and watching something to put you in the Christmas mood right?

We also had fun decorating our fireplace this year. Well, I did anyway. I'm loving having a fireplace in our house for the first time... ever. 

Please overlook all the crazy books and supplies. I mean come on. We are homeschoolers right? :-) Surely you have spots where books are stacked all different ways because little hands keep running to grab them, right??? 

Our local community college has a model train display that they put on each year at this time. The local model train club comes out and sets up their displays and you can visit, for free. So that's what we did. This is one thing we have tried to do since we moved here. 

Someone was a little excited, don'tcha think?

These displays are amazing and you can tell that it took a huge amount of time, talent and effort to put all this together. 

The detail is simply amazing! I can't imagine doing this but it has caused Boo bear to want to start a new hobby. There are people fishing, long horn cows, a herd of animals, a shopping area and so much more. 

He really did have an amazing time ;). 

We went to lunch, made some treats and had a special candlelight communion service this week. We are really looking forward to the next few days as we have lots of fun coming up. I'm also trying to take sometime to evaluate where we are at this point in the year and what we need to do come January. 

So how has your week gone? Are you still schooling or are you on break yet? 

I hope you and your family have an amazing and wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New year! See you in a few weeks!
